Easy Walking Tour - June 11
Saturday, June 11 at 11:00 AM
This leisurely 60-minute walking tour will cover the Walled Garden and Lower Terrace, with a view from the top of the Vista. All the paths are stone dust, and there are two short flights of steps. There are no hills to climb.
This tour will provide highlights of the history of the estate from its origin in 1862, through each of its three owners, emphasizing its world famous heyday in the Untermyer years, its dramatic decline after 1940, and the remarkable restoration efforts that have been ongoing from 2010 to the present day. There will be an emphasis on Samuel Untermyer and his wife and their place in early 20th century history as well as discussion of the remarkable architecture of the gardens. There will be some limited discussion of the horticulture but the magnificent plantings will mostly speak for themselves.
